2Sharon then carved and crumb coated the body
3The body was then completely covered in fondant
4The legs and tail were added using modelling chocolate and fondant. Sharon worked on the details on the face and head and added ears. The whole piece was airbrushed and some dusts were also used to hi light parts of the dog.
5Sharon finally worked on the board by first adding a wood effect floor around the edge of the board and a blanket for the dog. The cupcake was added at the end so a candle could be inserted!
